The crape myrtles in my garden are still going strong. Several of them are blooming much later than in previous years. I believe it may have something to do with the intense level of summer heat and lack of regular rain showers. Whatever the reason, I am delighted to have them still blooming their heads off now, and so it only seems appropriate to highlight them in this week’s In a Vase on Monday, sponsored by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
I don’t know the name of the pink one, but I always refer to it as my ‘Watermelon Pink’ crape myrtle. The purple one is ‘Catawba.’
My Arranger suggested that we locate the arrangement on our front porch. It takes a winning place between our two rocking chairs, a spot where we often find ourselves on a late afternoon watching the crowds pass on their way home. A glass of wine makes it close to perfection.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are including in their vases this week.
